Eventually, Missouri will establish huntable populations of elk. When it does, the state will implement a preference point system. And when it does, I'll be in on the ground floor, and may stand a chance of drawing a tag in my lifetime. But, the guy that's a point behind me never will.
I think they will probably use a weighted random draw like they do for the managed hunts. Since the weighted random draw system was implemented I have only drawn one time, before that I drew, on average, 4 of 5 years or 80%.
I think if there is going to be something other than a true random draw the weighted draw is probably the best but I really don't like any of them.
